Well, it appears that a Victorian-era fashion staple is having an epic comeback. First Sarah Jessica Parker wore a custom Monse corset to this year’s Met Gala, then Rihanna was spotted in one out in Santa Monica last week, now Gigi Hadid is the latest celebrity to lace up the waist-cinching look. Once relegated to the lingerie drawer, nowadays the corset has stand-alone power, an underwear-as-outerwear statement piece can be paired with everything from skimpy miniskirts to baggy pants.
Like Victoria Beckham’s bustier and trouser ensemble at Cannes, the 21-year-old supermodel’s outfit comes with a menswear-inspired twist. Her Rubin Singer top alludes to the skin, while the peplum shape is in keeping with a traditional, and perennially alluring, hourglass silhouette.
